When Joachim Löw announced his resignation as coach of the German national team last week, attention quickly turned to whether Jürgen Klopp, who is currently undergoing his most difficult period since joining Liverpool, will be interested in taking the job.
Klopp, on the other hand, was able to dismiss the reports. And, if there was some uncertainty or hope that the situation could have improved in the last week, Klopp’s agent Marc Kosicke reaffirmed Klopp’s status when questioned about the manager’s future by the German press.
“If Jürgen says it so plainly, he will stand by it,” Kosice said. “Besides, his job in Liverpool isn’t over yet.” The Reds have a three-year deal with Jürgen. He said it emphatically so there would be no room for speculation.”
Liverpool has been in relegation danger since the calendar turned to 2021, but there is no doubt that, regardless of how the season ends, he will be allowed to improve over the summer and return next season.
In terms of national teamwork, another of Kosicke’s clients, former Red Bullhead of sport and development Ralf Rangnick, who has expressed interest in the role, could end up there. Klopp, on the other hand, will remain at Liverpool.
“Jürgen has always said that if the DFB is looking for a coach and he is not managing a club, he may be available at some point. Since the latter isn’t the case, that’s no longer an option,” Kosice added.
